(1) Position the generator (1) in its mounting and see that the mounting holes are properly alined.
(2) Install the mounting bolts (14), lockwashers (13), and nuts. Do not tighten the bolts.
(3) Install the adjusting bolt, lockwasher (2), and nut (3), attaching the generator to the adjusting bracket (4).
Do not tighten the adjusting nut.
(4) Push the generator against the engine and install the fan belt on the generator pulley.
(5) Pull the generator away from the engine and check the fan belt tension. If the fan belt can be depressed
one-half of an inch by thumb pressure between the pulleys, the adjustment is correct.
(6) Hold the generator firmly in the position which permits the fan belt to be depressed one-half inch and tighten
the adjusting nut (3) securely.
(7) Tighten the mounting bolts (14).
(8) Connect the shielded leads (16) to the generator terminals Note. When the generator is repaired or
replaced, it is necessary to connect a Jumper lead momentarily between the battery terminal and generator
terminal of the voltage regulator to polarize the generator to the battery.
113. Voltage Regulator
a. General. The voltage regulator (5) is mounted directly below the generator (2). The voltage regulator limits the
voltage and current of the generator and protects the battery from overcharging.
When removing the voltage regulator, be sure to mark the leads properly to facilitate installation.
(1) Remove the lead mounting screws (12) and disconnect the leads (6) from the voltage regulator (5). Tag the
leads to facilitate installation.
(2) Remove the mounting nuts (9), washers (10), rubber washers (14), and screws (3).
(3) Remove the voltage regulator (5).
(1) Position the voltage regulator (5) over the mounting bracket and see that the mounting holes are properly
(2) Install the mounting screws (3), rubber washers (14), washers (10), and nuts (9). Tighten the nuts securely.
(3) Connect the leads (6) with the voltage regulator and tighten the lead mounting screws (12).
